    I have an AEBS and have to make some changes to use the Air Video app for my iPhone.
    I have to switched it to Bridged Mode and also set up Port forwarding on my comcast router (SMC 8014) to get Air Video to work over the internet.
    The missing piece is I need to know the WAN address of my AEBS. How do I find this out?

    if the AEBS is in bridged mode and connected to your comcast router, it doesn't have a unique WAN address

    get the wan address from your router, or go to http://www.whatsmyip.org/

    then forward the port to the IP on your computer.

    In Bridge mode, the AE is just a transparent hop for the signal. it's IP doesn't really matter.

    Airport Utility>Manual Setup.

    On the bottom of the Airport>Summary page you will see the WAN address.
